Trivia

  • The PSRM is not legible due to the disc art blacking it out. If anyone has been able to read it, let me know.
  • VR Baseball 99 was clearly designed with a bit of humor in mind. From the cheeky use of peanuts as the disc art and packaging insert art, to the disc art claiming ‘Anything else is just a coaster’, and the admitting of heckling being in the game, Interplay clearly was looking for laughs to be a selling point.
  • Creative visual clues – the ‘swing action’ on the cover illustration is the VR Sports logo’s swoosh.
  • You can still see most of the original VRSports web-site, complete with quotes from Game Fan magazine at: https://web.archive.org/web/20000511192044/http://www.vrsports.com:80/
